The evaluation of the completeness of death registration in the presence of high net out-migration: the case example of Mauritius

Quality of the system and assessment
As the developing countries continue in their efforts to improve their civil registration and vital statistics systems, it is important for them to be able to evaluate their progress. For estimating the completeness of death reporting, a number of indirect estimation techniques have been developed. These techniques assume a closed population, and so their usefulness for countries which have high rates of net in or out migration is a matter of concern. The author of this paper applies the techniques to the case of Mauritius, an island nation with high net out migration, to study the impact of this demographic condition on the estimates of completeness of death reporting.

The technical paper was published in 1995 (#61) by IIVRS.
